Default Rattling door pull

I tried searching but no luck...

the passenger side door pull thing is loose and make a pretty loud (and very annoying) rattle. The driver side one is nice and tight and quiet.

is this a common issue and are there any tricks to sort it out? or do I have to replace the whole door panel or something equally painful?

thanks,

Take off the handle bezel by taking out the 2 screws then pop it out. there are 2 screws which hold that handle. Tighten those screws and good to go. Then just put the bezel back on

Just as I was about to give up my search on this subject and start a new thread, here it is.
My passenger door handle is loose and rattles.
Seems strange the passenger side would be the one to become loose.

So, I don't need to remove the entire door panel? Just that seperate contrasting insert that contains the door pull, armrest etc.?
Where are those 2 screws exactly?

the 2 screws are right behind the door pull. the rest is held on with clips. also, the armrest is a separate peice from the door pull / bezal. no need to pull that off.

i had to pull mine off the passenger side and ajust it too.

Thanks!
This had to be one of the easiest fixes I've done in years!
Didn't take even 5 minutes and it was done.

I was able to get one screw tightened, but the other screw is blocked by the power door lock assy. I couldn't see how to unplug it from the switch. I was afraid if I pulled on too hard I might break it. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I just fixed mine. There are metal spring clips on the switch assembly that have to be pushed in, so the whole assembly can move up through the door bezel. This leaves room to get at the other screw. The switch assembly then snaps back in.
